Does exercise help multiple myeloma?
Exercise is generally beneficial for overall health, including for individuals with multiple myeloma. Regular physical activity can enhance cardiovascular health, improve muscle strength, boost mood and help manage side effects of treatments, such as fatigue. However, given the bone complications associated with multiple myeloma, it’s essential to approach exercise with caution. A personalized exercise plan developed with a physical therapist or oncology specialist, considering the patient’s health status and potential bone lesions, is recommended.
